ARABIAN SEA (Feb. 9, 2020) The guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy (CG 60), in accordance with international law, boarded a stateless dhow in the Arabian Sea and interdicted an illicit shipment of advanced weapons and weapon components intended for the Houthis in Yemen, Feb. 9, 2020. Maritime security operations, as conducted by the U.S. Fifth Fleet, entail routine patrols to determine the pattern of life in the maritime environment as well as to enhance mariner-to-mariner relations. These operations reassure allies and partners and preserve freedom of navigation and free flow of commerce. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Michael H. Lehman/Released)
